Thanks for your message. John Charles Mounce sounded like an interesting character. His name appears in the SA Ship deserters register. He jumped ship in 1866. I am not exactly sure where but would assume it was in the South East of SA. I think he only had the 9 kids with Charles actually him. I can't be exactly sure of this because not all kids appear in the birth records. I couldn't find George, but certainly found him in the WW1 records. John Charles seems to have been known as Charlie which appears on his headstone in Payneham, SA. I assume that your husbands grandfather was Leslie Edgar Mounce. I think he was brought up as John's 10th child. John's name appears as his father on the WW1 records, and also Leslie Edgar appears on John's obituary. I believe Leslie Edgar's father was Joseph Thomas Warr, the son of the Millicent butcher. Joseph Thomas Warr ended up marrying in WA, but then ended up back in Millicent after WW1, and actually signed up in Keswick, SA as an unmarried man. Google his name for a photo on Mapping our Anzacs.
